Highlights:

Eureka County School District is a small rural Nevada district of 259 students in three schools, preparing our students for the much wider world. Since 2003 our students in all three schools exceeded AYP, and in 2009 earned High Achieving status for the two elementary schools and the high school. 100% of ECSD teachers are highly qualified, and continually monitor student achievement, and strive to improve instruction of standards to promote greater student learning. We use state of the art technologies including SmartBoards and 1:1 computers. We offer a comprehensive K-12 curriculum; and we have continued after-school tutoring programs and summer school at the three schools. We continue, for a third year, a 4-day school week to improve student and teacher attendance.  It has been a popular success. We have a high level of parent involvement with nearly 100% of our parents attending school activities.
